. I really don't care how long it takes. For me, the idea is to get all of my media racks out of my room, Second, as far as the cloud goes, I am worried about that. You would need a solid internet connection all the time and I don't want to put my faith in that. Te way I am setup, even if if my area looses power and internet capabilities, my system will still run. But if something like that happens and the internet goes down, I am out of luck. I will be doing hard drives for everything. Most of you guys have way more BR's then I do right now. I have about 110+ BR's, I think and probably another 300 regular DVD's. The whole idea for me is to have EVERYTHING at my finger tips like my friend has on his server. I mean, it's a fair chunk of change to get this only put what I think are the best movies on here. I don't care how long it takes. Plus, I really don't have THAT many CD's either. It will probably end up being way less then most people here. So anyway, that's what I think.
Totally understandable. The cloud-based storage is only for back-up purposes only though. It’s definitely not for streaming directly through J-river. That would bog down other internet functions, and I, for one, will not risk my internet speeds—I can’t survive without Hulu Plus and HBO Go
) Oh wow, you’re definitely going all-in with the media storage. Eh? Well a benefit of that is removing the racks might get you even better measurements, although I know your current measurements are great. I think Pokekevin is right though—I will likely all end up loading everything, even if it takes time. If there were any college kids who I trusted around my gear, I would consider paying one to rip all my blu rays for me while I’m out the house, but, I don’t know anyone I can use that’s trustworthy. Or maybe……maybe I can mod my system with a few external drives and rip 4 at a time.. At 5 hours a weekend, that’s 20 blu rays a weekend, which would take about 16 weekends to complete…..man, now I want to rip it all!!!
